Hemostatic effect is regardless of blood coagulation processes in the body and caused by binding of positively charged elements of dressing material with negatively charged erythrocytes. When contacting with blood, hemostatic dressing Revul (Ревул) enhances the absorption of blood liquid fraction and forms a single gel-tremellose mass, thus facilitating the hemostasis.
When the powder interacting with blood, Revul forms hydrogen compounds with water (as blood consist 90-95% of water), which leads to the aggregation formed elements of blood and clotting factors at the site of contact followed by the formation of a blood clot. This occurs due to the large molecular weight of molecules, which are full of the hydroxyl groups.
Take the REVUL® hemostatic dressing pouch, check the package integrity, open the pouch and take out the dressing.
Perform a tight tamponade of the wound, preferably, above the source of bleeding. Leave hemostatic dressing in the wound. Rests of the dressing can be cut off or pick off if necessary. DO NOT DISCARD THE EMPTY PACKAGE!
Press tightly a gauze tampon to the wound for 5 minutes. Apply a compressing bandage to the wound.
Seek medical attention at the nearest first aid station as soon as possible.
Give the empty pouch to medical professionals.
Do not use the remainders of the roll gauze.
Wound in the start of bleeding.
To provide maximum contact of powder with the damaged vessel clean the wound from the foreign bodies, blood clots.
Fill the wound with package content. DO NOT DISCARD THE EMPTY PACKAGE!
Press firmly to the wound with a bandage or gauze pack for 5-7 minutes.
Apply a pressure bandage on the wound.
Do not throw an empty package!
It may be needed by medical personnel to identify a haemostatic agent.
As soon as possible, take the patient to the nearest first aid. Pass an empty packet to medical professionals. Do not use any powder residue.
“We decided to organize provision of Revul, first of all, to 93-rd air mobile brigade, who is located at one of the hottest zones – village Peski near Donetsk.
When supplies to the army are limited, we are forced to spend medicines reasonably, i.e. use medicines with almost expired best before date. This is why, period, during which Revul could be used, is its additional advantage. Of course, it would be good if there were no need to use it…”
“We received the following feedbacks after practical usage of Revul by wounded people at military zone – ATO: “Revul is easy and applicable to any wound, efficiently stops the bleeding. Excessive amount of medicine is removed from the wound easily by cleaning with 0,9% solution of sodium chloride. Affordability is very important and allows to provide Revul to more staff.”
“Efficacy of Revul is demonstrated in our research on bleeding models of different localizations, including heavy arterial bleeding model.
REVUL approved itself as an efficient hemostatic, has shown positive profile of influence on laboratory parameters, which characterize hemostasis system.
In comparison with its analogues, Revul exceeds in terms of safety, because it has no anaphylactogenic properties.”
“I would like to tell about an analogue of Celox but manufactured in Ukraine. The guys brought it to us for the soldiers’ first aid kits. We like a new haemostatic as it is manufactured in Ukraine and is much cheaper than its analogues. I wish every soldier had it in his first aid kit. And it makes me even more proud that this product is manufactured in Ukraine!
It is much-needed as I give medical briefings myself and imported products are very expensive, so we use old tourniquets, and we have very limited quantities of Celox, even though we are at war for over a year now. It would be really good if each soldier had Revul, so please provide our men with it.”
“One of the main elements of our first aid kits, which we assemble for soldiers who stand at checkpoints and forefront positions, are haemostatic products. In particular, we were given a few samples of haemostatic Revul for testing.
We tried it first on small wounds and then on the larger ones. Basically, Revul has proven itself to be quite effective, so there is an urgent need to replace Celox and Celox-like haemostatics which our soldiers are overloaded with. They cause serious burns of both the eyes and periwound area further on. They should be replaced with a safer haemostatic called Revul.”
